IT Community Training: Introduction to Graphite

Friday, July 17, 2015
12:00 AM
2001 LSA

Please join us on Friday July 17th from 10:00–11:30am in LSA Building room 2001. Brock Palen from Advanced Research Computing will give an introduction to Graphite. Graphite is a scalable time series database which solves many common performance and ease of use issues associated with round robin databases. Graphite has a web interface, makes graphing easy, and is capable of storing thousands of metrics a minute; Graphite is frequently used by system administrators to present performance data and create dashboards. We will cover basic setup and several examples of getting data into Graphite as well as how to display data.

Note that the presentation will start a minute or two after 10:00 am, not on "Michigan time." Be sure to allow extra travel time to get through Art Fair!

This presentation is one in a series of monthly IT Community trainings, see https://knowledgebase.umich.edu/Training. The trainings are free and open to the public, so feel free to forward this message to anyone who may be interested in attending.

We're looking for people to present on technical topic in future months. If you are interested, please let us know.

We're also still seeking people who are interested in helping to organize future trainings. If you'd like to recruit speakers, create a better website, arrange for remote access to trainings, arrange for recording/publishing of trainings, schedule rooms, send announcements, or implement your own ideas or improvements, please join the MCommunity group it-community-training.
